mccain and senator gram are just on a warpath in general about the obama administration foreign policy in the middle east arguing it is failing .. in many dimensions. i think there are so many elements that they oppose, the one i would focus on for your viewers is, i think the job that they have done communicating with even traditional and close friends and allies, the uae, jordan would be two obvious examples, has not been what you would expect or indeed what the u.s. needs right now. this period of change in the region you have got to really stand close to all the people who matter in terms of the execution of foreign policy. >> rose:. >> maliki is not only a tyrant but from the beginning he is sectarian to the core, and that means this shiite divide and he has taken the war to the sunni minority in iraq and i think in a way has done sort of iran's bidding in that way but i think even if you set the war in syria aside, he would have an enormous problem on his hands because, on his hands because he has not -- he has not tried to be inclusive in the way that he has governed iraq, and

it was a foreign policy question. when reagan was running against ford in the primaries, reagan had in the speeches time and time again reference to the panama canlt. it did not resonate until one night in florida it blew the roof off to the place he was speaking. reagan never lost his place was stimmied. he didn't expect the places -- applause there. it it had do with the complication of foreign policy at the time mo -- if you had to have a book shelf of explanations what you're doing is right or wrong. just oppose it. it may be wrong and current productive. if works because of what you talked about and works in a political sense because it's a populous appeal to the frustrations who has every right to be frustrated and every right to be upset about the way things are in washington. what is the response to the tea party? you have 18 poem -- people in washington saying what is their plan? it's not the job of the american people to come up with a plan. it's a job to say we don't like it or we do. we hired you guys to come up with a plan and implement it. now you do it. that's not the way the reelect

he has seen the european policy advisor and foreign policy advisor cath rich ashton over the last few months and with african allegation to see he was properly cared for and the message by his family is he was properly carried for and well treated, but the authorities, whether they would allow the legal team access or whether it was the legal team wasn't given access because he didn't want to talk to lawyers. if he is saying i'm the president and if he is still saying i have nothing to defend, then what is he going to talk about? they would have been looking at what happened in early december last year, what the charges relate to, outside the presidential court there and we have a huge antisitting and that was cleared and the charges were more than that and there were more that were killed that night but not bringing those up in court because the other people that died were muslim brotherhood. they are only referring to those who were not and the charges relate to insightment to commit murder. so we understand and we don't know this because we have not been told but the prosecution's
-- on how to achieve a foreign- policy objective. in on personal cell phone calls, does that go too far? guest: our leaders need to apply a balancing test. they have to weigh the foreign intelligence game from such a sensitive axes, like you are saying, in particular intercept of a foreign leader's phone call. a foreign-policy flap would result if it was disclosed. you have to apply that balancing. i think judging from the newspapers that is what the white house is doing this week. they are reviewing the posture of the intelligence community on these collection priorities. are going to apply this test to see what makes sense for the country. appropriate?back guest: it is safe to say the snow back -- the snowden relation did -- revelation caused blowback. host: he was a game changer in all this, would you agree? caller: i think so because this is one of the greatest leaks and compromises in american intelligence in our history. it is the equivalent of giving the other team our playbook. going to be looking back on the snowden years for years to come, perhaps as a point when some of our c
be able to sort of outmaneuver her on. >> if it does come down to foreign policy in 2016, who would you match up? which on the republican side might be a good nominee to front that? >> someone like rand paul, you know. in particular, because rand paul has been kind of set apart from chris christie. chris christie has done this himself. basically set himself up as the anti-rand paul. rand paul is somebody who has famously made the big speech and has really pushed a lot of the sort of less hawkish, anti-surveillance state, you know, sort of anti-big brother line on the right and has really had a lot of success with that. like i said, hillary is not going to be able to take that line. she's going to end up defending what the administration has done so far. >> peter, you're reading my notes here. i want to play a little bit from senator rand paul on what he said on abc's "this week." take a listen. >> the difference is i take it as an insult and i will not lie down and say people can call me dishonest, misleading or misrepresenting. i have never intentionally done so. and, like i say, if --
this very important foreign-policy matter going forward. >> time for some fresh thinking in terms of u.s. policy in the post-pullout? >> we are focused on providing the necessary assistance to a iraq to help them combat terrorism as well as the broader assistance to provide through the strategic framework agreement. that encompasses not just the security relationship, but an economic and political relationship. part of this -- part of what a for has been going to many years now is the efforts to resolve the political differences and divisions within that country peacefully and through politics rather than through file it conflict. violent conflict. the forces of al qaeda have been trying to disrupt that throughout this time. it is important that in spite of the differences that exist politically in the iraq that the parties and groups continues to resolve their differences peacefully, which further isolates the activities that al qaeda and him and straights what they are for all to see, which terribleeking of violence on innocent civilians which is damaging to every iraqi. our systems
goals, foreign relationships, and her policy toward pyongyang. her departure for europe, she told the bbc that it is hard to trust the north korean leader, because he did not honor his promises, but that any provocation by pyongyang would carry a huge price tag, and her country would never accept a nuclear-armed north korea. >> we cannot repeat the vicious cycle of the past, where north korea's nuclear threats and provocations were met with and then followed by renewed provocations and threats. otherwise, north korea will continue to further advance its nuclear capability, and will come to a point where this situation will be even harder to crack. we will not be talking about whether north korea should or should not possess nuclear weapons. but their demands will creep to such an extent that they will be calling for arms reduction or arms talks. and it will be more difficult to deal with this issue. >> after decades of failed negotiations and nuclear tests, pyongyang is getting closer to a deliverable nuclear weapon. it's long-range rocket launch last year, and its most recent nuc
